CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Austin Peay State University women's track and field team kicks off the 2012-13 indoor season, Saturday, at the Middle Tennessee Christmas Invitational, hosted by MTSU. The meet is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Murphy Center.
Joining the Lady Govs and host Blue Raiders at this event will be Tennessee State, Western Kentucky and Chattanooga.
At last year's Christmas Invitational, senior Chantelle Grey won the 600m run in her first meet as a Lady Gov with a blistering 1:34.76 mark. Grey, who went on to represent the Lady Govs in the NCAA East Preliminary Round of the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, begins her final season with Austin Peay after transferring from Montana.
The Lady Govs hope another transfer can pay big dividends this season. Senior thrower Jasmine Foster comes to Austin Peay from ETSU, where she was a 2011 bronze medalist at the Atlantic Sun Indoor Championships in the shot put.
In addition to Foster, five other student-athletes will make their track and field debuts for Austin Peay Saturday: Hannah Johnstono (pole vault), Breigh Jones (sprints), Lamontra Robinson (sprints), Kymmalett Ross (sprints) and Antonia Stevenson (sprints).
